4 Separate Games to Play! 

Every Tri-Screen Time & Fun offers you 4 exciting games to choose from. 
You can play a separate game on each of the three screens, or play a 
marathon game that lets you try to make your way through all three screens, 
one after another. + 

Get Ready! 

1) Insert 2 batteries (LR43 or SR43) with 
"+" sign up as shown in diagram.

be displayed, then musical tones will sound. After this the game will begin.

screen. Use the "SHOOT-HIT" button to shoot spears in the middle screen.

Game "A" 

You are a diver, trying to get near a sunken treasure ship. But monster fish. 

are standing guard and you find yourself under attack from sharks, devil 

rays and deadly swordfish almost as soon as you appear. You have to be 

quick and smart to make your way through these dangers. 


10 points for every dangerous fish avoided. 

10 points for moving backward. 

Game over 

Any of these fish can put an end to you. If you are caught three times, the 

game is over. 

Game "B" 

You are attacked by giant squids and must shoot them with your speargun. 

It's not as easy as it sounds. Wild sea horses keep getting in the way of your 

shots. If you make it through this danger, a gigantic octopus lies in wait, 
holding a poor defenceless little fish in the same crushing grip that he will 
soon hold you. Don't get too close, he can squirt a nasty poison that kills 
at the slightest touch. Use the "SHOUT" button to shoot, and the "DIREC- 
TION" button to move to better positions. 

Get 30 points for every giant squid you shoot. 
20 points for shooting the sea horse. 
50 points for winning the game if you shoot the squid 3 times. 

Game over 

Both the squid and the octopus shoot out deadly posion. If it hits you three 
times, you are finished. 
Game "C" 

Now you have to deal with the gigantic octopus face-to-face, with your bare 
hands. But be careful. You only have two hands. He has eight! You have to 
hit him 10 times to make him fall down, but he only has to hit the diver 5 
times. Use the "HIT" button to punch the Octopus. Use the "DIRECTION" 
button to raise or lower Diver's punching hand. 


You get 10 points every time you slug the octopus. 
50 points for knocking the octopus down. 

Game Over 

The octopus packs a powerful punch. Every time Diver is hit 5 times, he will 
be knocked down. If he's knocked down three times, the octopus won. 

Game "ABC" 

Begin at the bottom screen and work your way through all the games des- 
cribed above. Same scoring applies. The game is over when the diver has 
been cought a total of three times in any or all screens.
